Some Questions and Answers Regarding Nervous System Scanning:
1. Do the scans cause discomfort?
The scans are surface scans performed along each side of your spine. There are no needles or irritation. Some practice members have commented that it feels soothing and relaxing as the instrument glides along the skin. The instrument is receiving important information from your Central Nervous System. It is very safe.
2. Why are theses scans administered?
Our intent and purpose for administering these scans is to detect and pinpoint abnormal function in your spine which cannot be seen on X-ray or measured by palpation of your spine. Abnormal spinal function due to vertebral subluxations, causes abnormal nerve system function. The scans are one part of the objective analysis of your spine and nerve interference from vertebral subluxations.
3. Why is it important to monitor the results?
We want the best for you as a chiropractic practice member! We can monitor your changes through periodic progress exams. It has been proven that a very slight amount of pressure can disturb the communication of the nerve system regardless of the symptoms that the person is experiencing. A chiropractor can measure the changes of subluxation correction with the advanced technology of the Insight Millennium. It is important to monitor how your spine is correcting and adapting to your corrective adjustments.
4. How will these scans benefit me?
For years, a major concern of the public has been, "Why do I have to keep coming back when I'm pain-free?" or "How do I know if I'm getting the proper amount of adjustments?" Now you are able to actually see the changes, and it will be easier to understand the importance and frequency of chiropractic care that you are receiving. It is for your benefit.
5. Why are children scanned?
It has also been noticed that patterns of interference can "run in the family". The scans have value in measuring nerve disturbance in children regardless of their symptoms. Our passion at CornerStone Chiropractic is to offer family chiropractic care so that children can grow and develop to their best potential. Chiropractic care is a family affair!
